Grilled Monterey Chicken Recipe

Try this chicken from the grill served in a refreshingly different way. And although the ingredient list appears long, it's a cinch to make. —Sherri Mabry Gordon, Pickerington, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon strips, halved
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 thin slices sweet onion
  • 6 thin slices tomato
  • 6 thin slices avocado
  • 6 thin slices Monterey Jack cheese


  • 1. Cook bacon according to package directions; drain. Meanwhile, flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the oil, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, salt, oregano and pepper; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken, uncovered, over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink.
  • 3. Move chicken to edges of grill. Top each with two bacon pieces and one slice of onion, tomato, avocado and cheese. Cover and grill 4-6 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 6 servings.

"Delicious & easy. I don't like avocado so I did leave out, but followed the rest of the recipe. I had over a layer of fried rice. Very tasty. I am going to try it on a hard roll as a sandwich next time. Thanks Sherri."

"OMG!!! this is one of my favorite chicken recipes. I make this at least once per week. the marinade keeps the chicken from drying out. i followed the recipe exactly with one exception. Instead of soy sauce, i used teryaki sauce because that's all i had on hand. PERFECTO!!"

"I've made this chicken many times; family enjoys it and we just top with bacon cheese since no one likes tomato or avacodo."
